What to expect

Soar through the trees and experience New Zealand’s ancient forest like never before – in two unforgettable zip line adventures. Step into a lost world and come face to face with towering trees and native flora untouched for centuries in one of the most intact native ecosystems you’ll find anywhere in New Zealand. Immerse yourself in this breath-taking country the way it once was – and hear the inimitable birdsong of New Zealand native birds including Tuis, North Island Robins, Kereru, and Tomtits in their natural habitat. Get below the surface, above the trees, learn about the past, and become part of the future – in an adventure like nothing else.

The Ultimate Tour is bigger, faster and longer than The Original Tour. The 3.5-hour experience consists of 1200m of zip lines, an 18m abseil, swing bridges, a 400m long zip line, a 50m high cliff walk and spiral staircases! This is the ultimate way to explore the treetops and the breathtaking lake views. Relive the sounds, sights, and smells of a time before men left their indelible imprint upon nature. This is New Zealand in all of its glory and you will never forget it! You’ll find yourself standing near the top of towering native trees; flying across fern-clad valleys that have stood untouched for 1000 years and climbing suspended staircases and bridges that will blow your mind.

You might even be lucky enough to hand-feed wild North Island robin which is pretty incredible. The Ultimate Canopy Tour is our premium product and has taken this tour to a whole new level. The longest, 400m zip line is a tandem zip line so you can ride side-by-side and share this unforgettable experience. The Ultimate Canopy Tour is higher, longer and 100% more spectacular than our Original Canopy Tour.
